dry texturising sprays

Oribe Dry Texturising Spray: £38.00 (shown is travel size)

I'm a huge fan of dry texturising sprays, they are great to get those messy, bed head styles espeically on freshly washed hair styles. These dry shampoo/hairspray hybrids are among my favourite hair products. A life saver for people like me who have pretty limp lifeless flat hair after washing and need something to give it a bit of roughness during styling. It's great for enhancing curled or wavy hair and adding a bit of body into the lengths.

Oribe Dry Texturising Spray is the most expensive item of the bunch. At a whopping 10x more expensive for full size than the VO5 version. It's nice, but not that nice. Definitely not worth it in my opinion. While the hold and the separation are there, and its so light on the hair with no residue. I just don't think there is anything special about this that can justify the huge price tag. Compared to the other dry texturising sprays this does actually last a fairly decent amount of time. VO5 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray is pretty cheap and does a good job of mattifying the hair and adding oomph. Sprayed at the base of the roots and then ruffled out it gives loads of volume and . It doesn't last all that long though and the can even suggests setting the hair with a hairspray to keep the volume. I think the TRESemme Texture Style Devine Definition Spray is also very similar to the VO5 version, I feel they both are the same kind of formula and hold but it's a touch lighter on the hair compared to the VO5 as it leaves a bit less residue.

I do think spending £38 on a full size bottle of texturising spray is a bit loopy, and I dont think I'd reccomend it purely for that reason. I got the travel size which is a slightly more managable £18. While I see why people rave about it I just cant mentally justify something like that for my hair. Go with the lower priced ones but they dont last as long and do need a quick top up and refresh as you go along!


  1. I really could do with one of these I'm in such a rut with my hair at the moment! xx

  2. Really want to try Oribe! It sounds so good, but it's really expensive xo

  3. I'm always so tempted to buy VO5 but I've heard a lot of mixed reviews... The VO5 volumising powder apparantly is amazing but I have also been told it leaves your hair feeling like cement.

    I've recently bought the batiste dry shampoo with added volume and it's actually been really good so far for giving me a bit of oomph - my hair's usually as flat as a pancake!!

    love megan from xxxx

  4. ive never actually used a texture spray before. think i may try one as my hair is fine and limp


  5. Great post!! I really want to try the Oribe one, it sounds amazing! :) ♥

  6. I'm really glad your honest with your reviews and have said the Oribe one isn't all that worth it,
    Its super expensive for just a texture spray.

  11. Oh my Oribe is so expensive! I'd never pay that much, the TRESemme one sounds very nice though (and a much more purse friendly option!) x

  16. huh...maybe it's because i live in berlin...but i never knew these sprays existed til now!!
    i will definitely be keeping an eye out for something similar, my hair is so fine and flat and lifeless, maybe this is the answer!

  17. I think I'll try the TRESemme! I'm always looking for things to give my hair more volume & texture. Thanks for the review (:

  18. I know it's really expensive and you don't think it's worth it but I still really want to try the oribe one! It just sounds really good and I like the fact you say it doesn't leave residue as I hate that in hair products! X

  19. I think I am going to hunt down something similar to these that is available in Australia.


  20. i have the vo5 one, prob get the tresemme one next.... the orbie one prob never £38???

  21. Definitely want to give the vo5 one a go! Looks and sounds good! :)

    Pipp xx

  22. I've been using the v05 one for ages, it doesn't last that long, your right but it's nice if you want that little bit of oomph.
